Sarah Palin Addresses Alaskan Independence Party
Former member of the Alaskan Independent Party and now Republican Governor and candidate for U.S. Vice President Sarah Palin addresses an AIP convention.
Dexter Clark, vice chairman of the Alaska Independence Party has said reference to Palin. "Our current governor, we mentioned at the last conference, the one we were hoping would get elected, Sarah Palin, did get elected. There's a joke, she's a pretty good looking gal, there's a joke goes around we're the coldest state with the hottest governor. And there was a lot of talk about her moving up. She was an AIP member before she got the job as a mayor of a small town - that was a non-partisan job. But you get along to go along - she eventually joined the Republican Party, where she had all kinds of problems with their ethics, and well, I won't go into that. She also had about an 80% approval rating, and is pretty well sympathetic to her former membership." Clark goes on to talk about the need for AIP members to "infiltrate the major political parties".
